A twenty-one year-old philosophy student with a passion for stories. On this blog you will find book reviews and musings on general life. I am particularly interested in science fiction and fantasy books, but find myself enjoying many different genres so there should be a fairly mixed bag. You can also find me on goodreads.

I have a love of the aesthetics of the Victorian era, hence the lanterns in my blog title.

Other interests include folk and traditional music. You can find my contributions to that passion here.
